Inspired by...Stacy!


Hi! Welcome to the very first Inspired By post with Denami!
This is where, on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, the DT chooses one of YOUR Denami cards, and uses it for inspiration!
This month it was STACY'S elegant card!


I had never made a Z-fold card before seeing hers, so I focused on that and kept the birthday theme as well. 
Instead of flowers, I went with the Solid Decorative Crest, shadow stamping it both in peach and white to look raised, and used the matching Decorative Crest Circle inside the Elegant Square Frame as the focal point. The Happy Birthday Script in pale grey was added as the sentiment. 
You should see the samples by the rest of the DT! 
GORGEOUS. 
(and they did a much better job of sticking to Stacy's original color scheme...oops!)

Want to have one of YOUR Denami cards featured? 
Link them up here for use to choose from:)

Thanks for stopping by,
and thanks to Stacy for her super duper original card!
XOXO

Hello Dana! Before today, I wasn't sure I'd ever make a z-fold card again but after seeing the lace trim on this card, I think I've changed my mind! It is so beautiful. And I like your colors here!

Such a beauty, Dana! I loved trying out the Z-fold for the first time, too. That apricot-colored cardstock is lovely!
